About this pro

I have played golf for over 50 years from juniors all the way up to the PGA Tour. I have worked with juniors in First Tee and players on Tour. My goal is to help you reach your goal. I use extensive video analysis that i share with you after each lesson. Whether you want to hit it farther, lower your scores or learn how to shave strokes off of your score, we will have fun learning the greatest game. I teach at Legacy Pines Golf Club.

I think golf is the greatest game. I learn something new everytime I play and everytime I give a lesson. I love to see the joy a student gets when they understand a concept we are working on and it "clicks"!

    Simplicity. His method is simple enough to understand and get the results that I’m looking for.. I’ve seen results in the very first lesson.. I will continue with Matt because I like the path that he has me on and the results on the course is proof. High quality lessons from a Professional Teacher.. before meeting Matt I was in a place where I wasn’t sure where the ball was going.. I have a new joy in my game.

    I would highly recommend Matt as a golf instructor no matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced golfer. Very knowledgable and willing to work around your schedule.

    Before taking lessons with Matt I had golfed enough to know I needed lessons to improve. Matt’s easy going attitude, teaching skills, and knowledge of the game made taking lessons enjoyable. My game has improved a lot and Matt’s teaching cues are easy to apply on the course. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone who wants to improve their golf game!

  • Jason Blackwell

    Matt has extensive knowledge about the golf swing and biomechanics. His teaching style is easy to understand and he constantly reinforces positivity. I have really enjoyed working with him and he has definitely improved my game!
